c 1327-1335, A biblical picture book with explanatory text of varying length, sometimes in rhyming couplets, in Anglo-Norman French, with some English. The material covers Genesis from Creation to Noah (ff. 1-9), the Life of Christ from the Annunciation (preceded by genealogies of Mary and Jesus) to the Ascension (ff. 10-38) and the fifteen signs of the Day of Judgement with some introductory material (ff. 39-42), (Dean, Anglo-Norman Literature, 1999, no. 472). Decoration: 231 miniatures or tinted drawings, mostly two per page. The explanatory text is generally written above the relevant image, rarely below or incorporated in the miniature. Some miniatures have a background of red diaperwork with fleur-de-lis, flowers and vine and oak leaves (ff. 2r-9r). Initials in red or blue with penwork decoration (ff. 2r-9r) and capitals highlighted in red.
